In August 2014, the world was shocked to find out that Robin Williams had died by suicide. For someone who brought so much humor to the world, it was a tragic, traumatic end. But no one knew how much more there was to the story. Left to speculate on Robin’s motives, the media circus spun out further and further, leaving the public in the dark about a complicated and obscured truth: Robin — bright, funny, quick witted — had lost a battle against an unknown enemy: the nearly impossible to diagnose degenerative brain disease Lewy body dementia.

Robin’s Wish is an intimate portrait of Robin in his final days, with deeply personal stories from some of those closest to him, including his wife Susan, who bravely came forward on her own to publicly reveal the findings of Robin’s autopsy — that he had been suffering unimaginably from LBD. Some of Robin’s closest friends and colleagues also speak out for the very first time about what they saw, getting the word out to fans about who Robin really was in light of what happened at the end of his life.

Knowing the truth can make all the difference — Susan and Robin’s story can spread awareness of and raise support around LBD, making it possible to fight misconceptions about Robin’s state of mind and stigmas around mental illness, bringing awareness to a disease that, while all too common, is unknown to most. Robin’s Wish can also aid progress toward earlier diagnosis, so families can have an understanding of what is happening to their loved ones. To fans around the world, the complete story of what really happened to Robin, and his complete legacy — to make people less afraid — has been untold. Until now.
